What's nice about areas with a relatively obscure import aftermarket following is the diversity of the vehicles - this 2001 Volvo S40 is a great example. (When was the last time you saw a Volvo at an import auto show?) Owner Carlos Pina sticks to the BTCC theme with a full suspension setup consisting of TME and IPD components, 18-inch Team Dynamics wheels, increased turbo boost and a larger aftercooler.

Yeah I thought that was kind of wierd. Carlos sent me an e-mail right after I posted this asking if I was going to HIN at Seattle, so I think he saw it.

No one will sponsor your car? That's crazy... I suppose you've talked with numerous people, I just can't believe that they wouldn't sponsor your car.

The only reason I can think of is because of the base price on a new C70, that's not really a reality for most "import tuners"...

Good luck man

Nah, I never bother asking any of them. Plus, no one really took me seriously when I told them about my project before. Can't blame them, I didn't expect I'd go this far either.

I'm not sure what was said but I don't frequent these boards often. The only reason I came here that one day was because someone emailed me saying Colin had posted this message here.
I would appreciate it if you guys not make rude comments about my car or me, I don't go making comments about your rides so I would hope you could respect me as I respect you.

Regards,

Carlos

LoL~ Carlos, don't worry, this is not some other war forum that you might have participated before.
If there were ever any'rude' comments, I am sure the members here are smart and polite enough to keep them to themselves or share them through private emails.

All I was wondering was your current relationship with IPD because it seemed as if you didn't want to have any affiliation with them at first...or just my misconception. Anyways, just curious what others are doing in the Volvo community, that's all.

I think you mis-interpreted what I said about a year and a half ago. In conversations in forums I stated that IPD and TME weren't the only ones who tuned Volvo's and I wanted to be original with different parts (as well as develop parts) for the S40.

My relationship with IPD is very good, I know Scott personally and he is a great guy.
I am currently working with IPD on another Volvo Project I've dubbed "Prototype" (but that's down here in good 'ol Texas!!)
